Why it’s for sale Kehoe, 52, says she wants to downsize.
Kehoe and her late husband made many high-end improvements to this 2,306-square-foot classic Tudor home. Christine shares:
“I think the house is stunning and beautiful. We took down some trees. We put up badminton and volleyball nets and have a football game on Thanksgiving. The 20-by-40-foot pool is in another area. There’s a huge canopy over the deck. The property borders five other properties, but you don’t know they’re there. It’s really private. You feel like you’re in the Hamptons. We’re on Main Street and the parade goes right by us. There’s a revitalization going on in Farmingdale, with new restaurants and high-end apartments. . . . I have original stained-glass windows and added more from England. I use all high-end products. In the kitchen, we kept the cabinets but removed the fronts for an open, country look. There’s exotic granite throughout and new appliances. . . . You could do a wedding at this house. We had my girlfriend’s 50th birthday here with 80 to 90 people in the yard. You can park more than 10 cars in driveway. . . . The basement has a full suite — a bedroom, closet, bathroom and living area.”
